    Girls first system!

    okay guys for awhile now I've been doin this as a side project.. she's focused on gettin her new car kia sorento, while also focusing on getting her career as a teacher.. we've been together long enough to know we're pretty much stuck with each other lol.

    Anyways I got a arc audio ks1200.1 for her sub amp...
    Question is: since it does more power at 2 ohms than 1 what should I wire too with the setups I wanna do..

    It's either:
    3 10s, maybe AT stratos dual 2's wire to 1.37 ohm I think 4's wire to 2.67..
    2 12s, probably sundown sd12, would obviously get dual 2s to wire to 2 ohms
    1 12, arc flatline would get a dual 4...


    That's the setups I want.... For the 10s, should I wire to 2.67 or 1.37... Since the arc does 1200 at 2 ohms and 1000 at 1 ohm.. lemme know thoughts and opinions on setups, if I do the flatline, the sorento will be an all out arc audio install..

    That's what I'm saying there both just as close ones below ones above.. imma probably just go with the arc flatline..would love to.do a.****** 4th order haha but its not an SPL machine... Unfortunately..
    It's just gonna probably end up being a fiberglassed sealed box so its not overpowering for her.. be a good fiberglass project for me anyways

    Re: Girls first system!

    See I'm thinkin since the kia is white, a white fiberglassed enclosure with plexi and white inside with the white on the arc flatline, will look super smexy, so it'll probably be an all arc system... Would like to do a ks 4 channel to match the mono.. and look for a set of arc components. Should turn out to be quite an expensive and sq setup

    Re: Girls first system!

    @mylows10 ; so what do you think you could do for me with the flatline dual 4, a ks 4 channel (nothing big probably less than 50 watts per channel or around that, and components for 4 doors?
